Basic Skills Necessary:

  • sewing
  • very simple quilting (in the ditch fine)
  • hand or machine applique
  • simple embroidery for wording

Pattern Description:

This verse really speaks to me! As a teacher, I tried to instill in my elementary students that although they won't be best at everything, they need to try and that everyone's contribution is important. This verse says that so well!
I designed this wall hanging as an entry in a blog hop. Many people asked me to write it up as a pattern, so here it is!
I love bright colors. This is designed to be bright and whimsical, but there is no reason why you couldn't easily change the colors to fit your tastes! You can do the applique by machine as easily as by hand, but at least look at the very easy method I use.
I think this piece would be great for a classroom, a workroom, or any place where people need to be reminded that their contribution is important! I have one in my sewing room!

  • approximately 20 1/2" x 24", not including ribbons
